Speed reading and study skills master classes for Post 16 students

Students in Post 16 have this week been working with the company ‘Enlightened Education’ to focus on some of the key skills they will need to ensure they are successful during their time in the Sixth Form. The sessions included asking students to conduct their own research and then present it in the form of a mind map, but doing so in a far more advanced way than many had done before – and completing a complex activity in just 15 minutes! Students also looked at how creating visual images of the content they are learning can help boost their memories significantly, and learnt how they can read significantly more in a significantly shorter amount of time than they had previously with a quick but very impressive demonstration of speed reading skills.

The feedback from all students was incredibly positive, and we hope to see the positive outcome in students day to day study skills.
